Jai Gangaajal Second Day Collection Report
Priyanka Chopra’s “Jai Gangaajal” has got a better opening than the last female centric film “Neerja.” The Priyanka-starrer has earned Rs 5.50 crore on its first day from the domestic box office, while Sonam Kapoor’s “Neerja” earned Rs 4.70 crore. “Jai Gangaajal” had the sixth best opening at the domestic box office this year. The film, which is a sequel to the 2003 film starring Ajay Devgn, features Priyanka Chopra in an action avatar. The film opened to mixed reviews Friday and also recorded an average first day box office collection. Released in 2,684 screens in India, “Jai Gangaajal” minted Rs 5.50 crore on day one.
“#JaiGangaajal Fri Rs 5.50 cr. India biz,” trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, adding: “#JaiGangaajal screen count: India 2684 screens … Overseas approx 300 screens.” With an average opening, this Priyanka-starrer failed to beat her last female centric film’s record. Priyanka’s “Mary Kom,” which was released in 2014, had accumulated Rs 8.4 crore on day one, while “Jai Gangaajal” income is 30 percent less. On Saturday being weekend, the films have showed decent growth in their business.
Due to strong word of mouth, Jai Gangaajal has taken an impressive jump and minted the amount of 6.65 crores* as its second day collection. The film was expected to open on a bigger note considering it features Priyanka, who is making waves worldwide. Nevertheless, the film hardly has any competition at the box office this week, so it should dominate the market for a while. Directed by Prakash Jha, the film features Priyanka as Superintendent of Police Abha Mathur, Prakash, who is making his acting debut, as inspector Bhola Nath Singh aka B.N. Singh and Manav Kaul as the main antagonist.
